There are two ways to modify a will. One is to add a "codicil" to it. A codicil is a sort of legal "P.S." to the will, revoking part of it or adding a provision, such as a new gift of an item of property. (The other way is to write a new will.)

You can use this codicil if you want to make a very simple change to your will, such as revoking a single provision or making a new gift. If you want to make multiple corrections or complicated changes, you should rewrite your will. You can do so quickly and easily using Quicken WillMaker Plus.

Important to Know

  • A codicil must be dated, signed and witnessed just like a will.
  • Many states don't allow beneficiaries to be witnesses.
